  1. Please put Reference and Bibliography menu! All students need this option

    More and more students use their iPads to do reports and even dissertations. It is not so convenient that there is no reference and bibliography option in the iPad. This is a must option. As iPads are being used by more students, please considered this option.

  2. Recover lost iPad word documents

    When my iPad froze trying to close a word document after trying all the normal routines, I closed and re-booted, on opening the document was still there, not sure what I did but it finally went and back to normal. Except the document could not be recovered. I note your comments that it is gone for good. How about rectifying this problem. It seems to be a common fault.

  3. Make custom color palette

    Being able to make your custom color palette for fonts would be great.

  4. Image Resize Measurements

    Up until a very recent update, I was able to resize images inserted into word in iOS (both iPad and iPhone) and the measurements would appear onscreen so I could size them perfectly (the measurements changing depending on if I dragged the corner of the pic to make it larger or smaller). Now the onscreen measurements are resizing images is pretty useless as I still need to check and adjust these images on my Mac just for this. Is something broken? This couldn't have been a conscious choice.

  5. Recover Unsaved Files

    There needs to be an option to recover files that were DELTED BY MICROSOFT word. This has happened a few times now. It’s on automatic save, and I’d written 2 pages. The file was deleted after the app froze and there is no way to recover it to my knowledge.

  6. Recently Deleted Section

    So when ever you delete something, it will go here and wait for 30 days before being permanently deleted. I just deleted something and it was very important but can’t get it back. This would help anybody who accidentally deletes things.

  7. USB Drive access on iPadOS

    With the full access of USB drives added to iPadOS, it would be great if you could add the ability to use files directly from the USB Drive on Microsoft Word and Excel

  8. Default Font and Size

    I wish there was a way to change the default font and size. Every time I open a new document(which is often) I have to change from Calibri and size 11 to Times New Roman and size 12.

  10. Add support for pasting formatted text and HTML into Word

    Pasting formatted text and HTML copied from web pages into the Pages app works, but this does not work in Word for iPad. It's a critical use case.

  11. Allow fonts to be changed after paper finished.

    I recently had to work on 2 different computers to write a paper. They didn’t have the same fonts listed so I had to use different fonts to write the paper. I thought I could change it later but I found out I couldn’t. Now I have a paper written in 2 completely different fonts and I am going to have to rewrite it on another computer to get it done with just 1 font. The paper is quite long and will take a lot of time to do.

  14. Talk to text!!!

    With my arthritic hands always bothering me, it would be a blessing to just be able to dictate , and watch my words become text!

  15. Reference tab

    I need to insert a bibliography for an assignment, so could you please add Reference tab as in the Desktop version? It would be very useful.

  20. Formatting for Page Numbers, Footnotes, etc.

    Word for iPad provides simple page number and footnotes for documents, but does not allow full formatting flexibility of the full desktop program. Full formatting flexibility of different first page, start with __, etc. and Roman numerals, Arabic numerals, etc. for students and academic writing requirements would ensure greater usability of the app.
